Taking action after falling in the New York snow

Premises owners have the duty to keep guests safe when they are on any part of their property. Many premises owners exercise very safe practices when it comes to the interior of their shops, movie theaters or restaurants, but they frequently fail to place adequate attention on the exterior of their property.

Distracted driving continues to be a roadway threat

While widespread public campaigns have informed New York drivers of the dangers of using their smartphones behind the wheel, distraction continues to pose a serious threat on the roads. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety released a report comparing surveys observing drivers in 2014 and 2018 for signs of distraction while driving or stopped at red lights. They found that the overall rate of distracted driving appears to be roughly the same four years apart, but the type of distractions may vary considerably. In addition, mobile phones aren't the only issue diverting drivers' eyes and minds from the roads ahead.

Getting medical treatment after a workplace injury

If you have been injured in the workplace in the state of New York, like many other injured workers you may be wondering about your rights to medical treatment and compensation. Workers' compensation policies can seem overwhelming and confusing at first, and this is why it is important to have a brief overview before proceeding with further medical services.

New Yorkers could be victims of drowsy rideshare drivers

Commuters who rely on services like Uber and Lyft may want to be aware that rideshare drivers typically work as independent contractors. The companies do have regulations in place that demand drivers take six-hour break periods after a certain amount of driving time. However, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has pointed out that many of these drivers work other jobs that could lead to added fatigue.
